Overheard tonight while Jason was putting the boys to bed:

"What're you doin'?" came Jason's voice directed to Jude.

"Hidin'," came the reply, accompanied by lots of giggling.

"Are you hiding from me?"

"Mm-hmm. I was hiding from you while you were at work today."

"Really."

"Mommy was hiding, too."

"Wow, I was even talking to Mommy on the phone, and she didn't tell me she was hiding!"

This brought a slight pause.

"You have a phone at work?" asked Jude in an incredulous voice.

Jason replied through suppressed laughter, "Yes, I do."

"Is it a black one?"

"No, it's kind of a beige one."

"Oh. I like beige phones."
